From the Principal:

Welcome Back! We hope everyone had a wonderful break! It's time to gear up and get going with the 2nd semester--which is always a super busy and super focused time of year.

I'd like to take a minute to welcome a new teacher to our team--Mr. Michael Umphenour. Coach Umphenour is our new PE teacher. He has taken the place of Coach Stinedurf, who has accepted a position at the middle school. We wish Coach Stinedurf the best and welcome Coach Umphenour! Please be sure to give him a warm LSRO welcome!

Report cards will come home tomorrow (Friday)! Please be sure to check over your child's report card for the first semester.

Coming up in a week is our College and Career Week! Look for more information from our counselor, Katie Ostrander, regarding our events for that week.

Also, don't forget that this Monday, January 15, is Martin Luther King, Jr Day! No School for staff or students. Enjoy a 3 day weekend.

Thanks everyone! Have a great weekend!

If you come to have lunch with your child, please make sure that they join their class when lunch is over. When teachers come to pick up students from the cafeteria, please have your child join the class at that time. Remember that student lunch times last for 30 minutes. Thanks for your help!
